For almost the first 30 years of my life, I didn’t travel very far at all. What is even worse, was that my best friend from university lived in Hong Kong and every time we spoke, I would imply that it would be nice to visit – but I never did!
Which is all a shame, since now it is one of my favourite places to visit when I have any spare time.
Before I went there, my mental picture of Hong Kong was of skyscrapers and densely packed humanity. While this can be true, there are also dense forests and steep, rocky hills which overlook the development below.
